Mezzacorona Teroldego Teroldego Rotaliano Riserva 2009
Teroldego Rotaliano Riserva The Teroldego wine is an indigenous varietal of Trentino which finds its ideal environment in the “Piana Rotaliana”. “Teroldego” seems to derive from “Tiroler Gold”, the name that indicated this wine at the Court of Vienna under the Austro-Hungarian empire. From this name came the “Tiroldico” and finally Teroldego. Among the Trentino wines it is certainly the most famous and rightfully called the royal wine of Trentino. This Riserva is produced only in the best vintages from manually harvested grapes of the best Piana Rotaliana vineyards, i.e. “Fron”, “Rauti”, “Catorzi” and “Sottodossi”. VINIFICATION Pressing with separation of the stems. Maceration of the skins with frequent repassing of the must. Fermentation at controlled temperature of 25°C (77°F) for 12 – 13 days. 24 months of aging, of which 12 in oak barrels (Allier and Troncais) and final refining in the bottle. CHARACTERISTICS Colour: intense ruby red Fragrance: complex, characteristic, with a pleasant aroma of ripe fruit (plums, blackberries, cranberry and blackcurrant), accompanied by the spicy notes which derive from the aging in oak barrels Flavour: full-bodied, well-balanced, pleasantly tannic ALCOHOL CONTENT: 13% PAIRINGS A wine of great character, it pairs well with stews, roasted and grilled red meats and flavourful cheese.

Editorial Reviews for Mezzacorona Teroldego Teroldego Rotaliano Riserva
This has a textbook nose. Wild berries, herbs and light spice notes with hints of dried fennel and a touch of sun-dried tomato. It checks off all the boxes. Big and polished in the mouth, this has a lot of intensity but feels a touch extracted with big, dry tannins that clamp down on the back end. Until then, this sets out in a fairly elegant and finely balanced style with subtle clay soil notes, chalky tannins and a bit of heat. This is a classic Italian wine of texture. It is full, rich and a bit matte. The nose remains awfully pretty, so time might help reveal more on the palate. 88pts
Light and fruity on the nose with subtle herb and mineral backing notes giving the raspberry and wild strawberry fruits a bit of depth. In the mouth this is fully resolved, soft and juicy with excellent purity to the wild red berry fruit and a nice mineral bite on the finish in a medium bodied style. Not too complex, but well balanced and appealing for it's fresh fruit tones. 87pts.
Probably the most famous and common red wine in Trentino, Teroldego is a pretty strong and tasty red. Mezzacorona Teroldego is very easy to find and a perfect starting for whoever wants to discover this type of wine.

Winemaker's Notes:"complex, characteristic, with a pleasant aroma of ripe fruit (plums, blackberries, cranberry and blackcurrant), accompanied by the spicy notes which derive from the aging in oak barrels. Full-bodied, well-balanced, pleasantly tannic."
Winemakers notes: Mezzacorona cultivates its own grapes in heart of the Dolomites along the Italian Alps. Every field is planted with single varietals and 100% single varietal wines are offered to the final consumer. The climate of the Italian Dolomites is characterized by a warm Mediterranean influence from the south and crystal clear sunlight. A fresh and wild breeze blows from the over 400 lakes and numerous glaciers of the surrounding mountains, peaking at over 9,000 feet. It is the ideal environment to create elegant, vivid and crispy varietal wines. The state-of-the-art wineries of Mezzacorona and the expertise of over 100 years of winemaking tradition preserve the elegance and crispiness of the solid and consistent wines that American consumers enjoy. This interesting red has a complex, characteristic fragrance with a pleasant ripe fruit aroma of prunes and blackcurrant. It is full-bodied and well-balanced with a soft mouthfeel.
